Chattanooga Landslides

One thing we can not predict or understand with certainty is the weather and its many conditions.

The combination of water + slope + movement = landslide or whatever the geologists prefer to call it. It seems that the seismic movement can cause more unpredictable movement at any time. Or it can stop. They don’t know and most of these agencies can only hire their own experts and advise you to do the same.

There isn’t much you can do except be prepared. Contact your insurance to make sure you have the right coverage and that your insurance company knows of any changes. Contact your local emergency services and they will monitor the condition and see how many others are affected. There are specific things on your home to look for-watch where the deck meets the house for any sudden gaps, are the windows securely in the openings or are there any gaps or sagging? Are any interior walls not meeting or doors suddenly not closing? Doors can also stick due to temperature change…but if you have these issues and there has been a lot of rain or some event that could cause shifting in your home contact a structural engineer to make sure your home is safe and keep your insurance informed as well.

We were new to the area. Deborah sent us listings on a daily basis. When we found one we liked she was there for us 100%. She helped us navigate the process and we ended up with a wonderful home and a great buying experience.
